We stayed at the Golden Nugget our last night in Vegas in August 2014, and we were too tired to leave the hotel to go have dinner. Of the several restaurants at the hotel, Grotto seemed to be the best choice in terms of cost and reviews. Indeed, we had a fairly good meal. It’s overpriced, but it could have been worse.
Grotto is divided into two sections. The main section occupies a large, semi-open space near the front desk. The second section is across the pathway that leads to the casino, by the pool and has views of the pool area. We ate in the main dining room, which is kept somewhat dark. It’s nice, but too open to pool-attired passerbys to feel anything other than casual.
I had the chicken marsala ($20), which comes with fettuccine alfredo. I enjoyed this dish very much, I hadn’t had that combination before but it worked very well.
One of the kids had the Margherita pizza, which I also remember enjoying. I don’t remember what Mike and the other kid had.
Service, I recall, was fine.
